A professional range of legal services in the comfort of your own home




I can help you with...


  • Single & Mirror Wills

  • Trusts

  • Making & Registering Lasting Powers of Attorney

  • Funeral Plans

  • Will Storage

  • Probate

70% of the British population have not written a Will - have you written yours?
If not, the people that suffer most are your family and friends. You might pay too much Inheritance Tax or long term care costs. Social services could decide who looks after your children or your children may lose their inheritance if your husband or wife remarries.

Are your Lasting Powers of Attorney (Property & Financial Affairs and Health & Welfare) drawn up and registered?
If you lose capacity without having these documents in place, life will be a nightmare for family or friends trying to look after you. They will have to apply to become a deputy through the Court of Protection, which takes a long time, is costly and intrusive checks are made to ensure they are suitable and capable. There are also annual and transaction fees.

Almost a million people have taken out Pre-Paid Funeral Plans - is yours in place?
There are lots of advantages in doing this, the most important being that it makes life easier for your family at a very difficult time. The cost of your Funeral Director's services is guaranteed and you can personalise the arrangements to reflect your wishes. Later, if residential care is needed, the money used to pay for your funeral is not means-tested or used in calculating your monthly fee, meaning more money is eventually left to your family or beneficiaries.

Would you find obtaining Probate and dealing with Estate Administration daunting, confusing, time consuming and expensive?
I offer Probate Services with the following benefits: an efficient service, competitive costs and professional communication and support all in the comfort of your own home.

Specialising in the creation of Wills, Trusts, Lasting Powers of Attorney and all associated services



At our first meeting, in the comfort and privacy of your own home and at a time that is convenient to you, I will provide information and offer advice in plain English, after fully discussing your circumstances and requirements. The whole process is relaxed and unhurried giving you time to decide what you want to do. There is no charge for an initial meeting and my prices are fixed to provide peace of mind. I cover Pendle, Craven and the Ribble Valley, North & West Yorkshire and East Lancashire.

I pride myself on a clear and easy to understand service with no grey areas.


After working in the Financial Services industry for 21 years, I have built on my knowledge and experience to become an Associate Member of the Institute of Professional Willwriters (IPW). You will find me approachable with a passion for delivering a professional service with empathy and understanding.

As an Associate Member of the IPW, I follow a Code of Practice which has Trading Standards Institute approval and I have £2,000,000 of professional Indemnity Insurance for each case. This means that if there is a problem, you have peace of mind knowing that it can be resolved.

I am required to undertake regular refresher training to update my knowledge and demonstrate continuous professional development. I have been cleared through a Criminal Records Bureau check and have a complaints procedure should you be unhappy with the service I provide.
